Though hordes of Facebook users may think of Google+ as nothing more than a pale and little used imitation of Facebook, the new social network created by the giant of the search engine world has its advocates.
One of them, Lynette Young of Purple Stripe Productions in Riverton, will lead a New Jersey CAMA workshop Thursday, September 19, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on how business owners can use Google+ to their advantage. The event will take place at the Princeton University Computer Science Building on William Street. Free. Register at www.njcama.org.
“Facebook is for people who you know, and Google+ is for people who you want to know. It’s an opportunity to make new connections rather than falling back on the same old connections. Businesses are looking for new eyeballs, ” says Young, who has written a book on the subject — “Google + for Small Businesses.”
